I am unable to connect my Gear S3 Frontier (Bluetooth) to my Gear app on my Galaxy Note 8 phone. After a recent software update, my gear s3 just won't connect to my phone. I manually tried connecting within the app, and it takes forever and ever and say pairing underway and does nothing. It was working fine before this update. Please help.

I have the same issue. As soon as I try to connect my gear s3 classic to my Pixel 2 running Android 9 it crashes.
Every single time.
So I am basically not even able to start the watch because I cand get past the connectin green.
It pairs fine but when it triea to connect it just crashes.
Is there someone looking into this pretty widespread issue? Or do I need to return the watch?
Has a solution been found for this issue yet. I was prompted to update software but now phone is stuck in preparing to connect mode for last 6 or so hours.
I am this far from returning the phone as well as the watch back. It is sooooo annoying.
Per my previous mail, full clear, uninstall reinstall, reset watch, I'm sure everyone has done these things already yet no help. The previous mail has a link to a story where it is public knowledge and lots of people have the issue.
When last update went through I had to visit service center to have my gear fixed. I am assuming the case being same this time around. Why do you do this to your customers?????
Any chance I can hand back all my samsung stuff back to you guys so that there is no more misery in my life????
Yes but no success. This is so annoying.
When the last update went through I had to send my gear to service centre to have repaired. What a product - you need to visit service centre everytime there is an update.
